About Us

Dominic's Farm began in 2005 with a mission to help challenged young adults.  The farm is named after my son Dominic, who is autistic.  Today, the farm is a place for all children to decompress from technology and get in touch with nature.   

There's something on the farm for everyone to enjoy.

Kathy Marinucci

Farm Owner

Kathy has been an eastern shore resident for over 20 years.  She started Dominic's Farm on behalf of her son Dominic who's autistic.  Her mission began as a flower farm where challenged young adults including her son could be a productive part of the community.  Over the years, the farm developed it's own "farm charm" with lots of adopted or rescued farm animals.  Her mission today is about getting children in touch with nature and animals and the special gifts they offer them.
